Which means Pkg::SourceFinishAll() stays just for backward compatibility or does it do anything else that makes it better for us to still call it, e.g., free some resources?

It should free some resources (it removes all resolvables from the zypp pool).
But it's usually called at the end, so it doesn't help much.

To save some memory it should be called when the package manager will not be used anymore, e.g. just after installing packages.
